I wasn't referring to the ecological problems associated with burning trash - more to the "I wouldn't want to be around during an open burn" comment.

As far as paper bags with handles, it's really easy to make them with pieces from other paper bags... (when they're no longer useable). You just to cut a piece about 2 feet long, fold it in half so it's a 1 foot long strip, then fold about 3 inches in from each edge at a 90* angle to the larger section. You end up with a "n" shape, and you glue 1" of the bottom of each tab to your paper bag with a glue stick.

Frankly, I still much prefer fabric shopping bags, and plan on making some eventually, so I can stop using paper or plastic entirely. I just have to get out of this undesirable living situation first. (These people are mongols compared to standard knowledge and practice... they live only for the sake of making others' lives miserable.)
